Women should have confidence and self esteem at any size. I am collecting sayings and pictures that embody that. Whether you are a size ten or a size twenty, envision that you are sexy. Own the attitude and dress for it. Enjoy your body on your journey, not just when you get to your final destination.

#MarilynMonroe - The world's first supermodel was hardly skinny. She was a real woman with curves!
Marilyn Monroe, the true beauty of a woman. A real woman has curves.
Let's hear it for curvy women! She looks healthy AND beautiful...By the 1950s, curves were embraced as Marilyn Monroe rose to fame. Finally, the average-sized woman could feel beautiful, rather than envious, while reading beauty magazines.
Sexy Curves look best

Body image truth
HELL YEAH! You know, I am so SICK of all the crap floating around that shame one body type in order to validate another. People make such horrible comments about skinny women... assuming that they are un healthy, or calling them "scarey"... or saying "she should eat a sandwich"...claiming that "real women have curves"... etc etc etc. You know what I say? F*CK THAT! Come on! Women come in ALL shapes and sizes. I don't advocate that women starve themselves to achieve a size 0, but I also don't advocate over eating and being obese. Just because a woman has curves does not make her any more "real" than someone who doesn't. We need to stop body shaming. We need to stop the crude remarks. We need to stop making fun of fat people, we need to stop making fun of thin people, and we MUST STOP making fun of women (and men) who suffer from anorexia. These people are in as much pain as those who suffer from a food addiction. It is an illness that requires a little bit of love and understanding. Love and accept women for who they are as a person, and not what their clothing size is. The body shaming must end!
I love this because a lot of people think they are doing good by saying oh curvy women are beautiful and being skinny is in attainable so skinny women are bad or anorexic. They say this to make curvy women feel better but the truth is they are making skinny people feel self conscious or ugly. I am tired of people always putting down people with the opposite body type. Body type should not be a beauty standard. All women are beautiful, no matter what they look like.
exactly. I am so sick of seeing people hate on curvy girls, and more recently, skinny girls - every body type can be beautiful as long as a positive attitude shines through!
Promote body positivity... all body types are beautiful!

Three Body Types: #1. Endomorph From all three body types, endomorphs are "fat retainers". As an endomorph you will always struggle to lose weight and will have to pay much more attention to what you eat and how you exercise because you are genetically prone to store fat easily. I know. It's incredibly frustrating, it seems downright unfair... The good news is that with the right body type diet and workouts you can get as lean as you want to be :) Well-known in-shape endomorphs are Jennifer Lopez, Oprah Winfrey, Kate Winslet, Cindy Crawford. Bone frame: typically a heavier build with short limbs and large joints, wide hips and shoulders; Soft tissue: tend to be naturally well-covered with fat tissue, even a little overweight; women are softer and curvier, with a very feminine aspect. Metabolism: sluggish, low energy; stores fat easily and holds onto it stronger than all other body types, retains fluids easily. Temperament: caring, patient, tolerant, extroverted, very nourishing, loves comfort (even luxury), good food and being with people. Ideal body type diet to lose weight: avoid (better yet, eliminate) all sugars (including all fruits except berries) and simple carbohydrates (sweets and white flour products and pasta, white rice, potatoes) as these cause a rapid rise of your blood sugar level, which, in turn triggers the release of insulin, the fat-storage hormone. Your nutrition plan for losing weight should be up to 30% complex carbs (starchy vegetables, brown rice, whole grains), about 45% quality protein (chicken/turkey breast, lean beef, whey protein) and about 25% healthy fats: omega 3 sources (fish, seafood) and especially coconut oil, which helps to increase your sluggish metabolism. To keep your metabolic rate up, be sure to divide your daily meals into smaller portions so that you have something to eat handy every 2-3 hours. Also, never end your meals feeling completely full. Strength training: tone-up your muscle mass at least 3-4 times a week at higher intensity to keep your metabolism high and shape up your body. The most effective workout is interval training for weight loss. If you're a woman, consider Curves workout centers - as these not only provide the right workouts for you, but also the motivation and fun of working out with a friendly group of health-minded women. Aerobic exercise: as an endomorph you need more cardio than the other body types to lose fat and keep it off; do at least 45 minutes high intensity aerobics 5-6 times a week, preferably in the morning to boost your metabolism for the rest of the day. In addition, get more active throughout the day - you really need to stay in motion to keep your metabolism up and burning calories. *** If your body type is predominantly endomorphic, you probably hate any type of exercise or intense physical activity. However, keep in mind that of all the three body types, for endomorphs diet alone is NEVER enough to lose weight, keep it off and shape up. Your slow metabolic rate must be boosted consistently with both strength training and aerobic exercise. Three Body Types: #2. Mesomorph Of the three body types, the mesomorph puts on weight and loses it relatively easy with the right diet and exercising routine. Notable examples of in-shape mesomorphs are... Madonna, Britney Spears, Gloria Estefan, Tina Turner. Bone frame: powerful frame, medium build, medium joints, large bones, with broad shoulders wider than the hips (slightly wider for women and a LOT more wider for men). Soft tissue: naturally (i.e., when not overweight) with a lot of dense muscle mass and lean (even without exercising). Metabolism: fast; losing fat and gaining muscle easily, but hard to get really skinny due to the dense muscle mass. Temperament: active, dynamic, assertive, courageous, energetic, even aggressive and competitive, and often risk taker. Ideal body type diet to lose weight: avoid fatty foods minimize as much as possible refined cabs (sugars and white flour products), as they cause rapid weight gain triggering a fat storage metabolism. Eat 3 smaller meals favoring foods high in quality protein (whey, turkey, chicken, lean beef, eggs) and complex carbohydrates (leafy greens and non-starchy vegetables). As a mesomorph, your 45% of calories should come from complex carbs, 35% from proteins and up to 20% from healthy fats (flaxseed oil, olive oil, coconut oil) and omega 3s sources (fish, seafood). Additionally, in between meals have a healthy snack: fruits (except the sweet ones: bananas, pineapple, grapes, mango, watermelon), raw almonds, plain yogurt or various smoothies with the right foods for you, as above. Strength training: strengthen your core with various exercises to flatten your stomach or pilates; tone and shape-up your muscles through light circuit training or body weight workouts 2-3 times a week. Aerobic exercise: keep looking lean and trim through 30-45 minutes of aerobics 3-5 times a week at moderate to fast pace. The most effective aerobic workouts are: various aquatic exercise routines, crunch cardio, hula hoop workout, circuit training, stairmaster, rope jumping, power yoga. Three Body Types: #3. Ectomorph Of the three body types, the naturally skinny ectomorph puts on weight the hardest - whether muscle mass or body fat. Some well-known, in-shape ectomorphs are Angelina Jolie, Paris Hilton, Michelle Pfeiffer, Whitney Houston. Bone frame: long, thin limbs, small joints, light build, with small waist and narrow shoulders. Soft tissue: not much muscle tissue or body fat, typically underweight. Metabolism: fast, not storing carbs as fat; difficulty to gain muscle, low in muscular strength. Temperament: typically hyperactive, sensitive, artistic, highly self-aware, apprehensive, introverted, socially restrained. Ideal body type diet to lose weight: avoid fatty foods, especially animal fat - except omega 3 sources (fish, seafood). Favor foods high in complex carbohydrates (whole grains, rice, nuts, all vegetables) making sure they are about 55% of your meals. Always include quality proteins (whey, turkey, chicken, eggs)- about 30% of your meals and small amounts - i.e., up to 15% of healthy fats (olive oil, flaxseed oil). Strength training: build up your muscle mass through daily moderate-heavy intensity split routine, working parts of your body alternatively and individually with body weight workouts, like a high intensity calisthenics routine or the five Tibetan exercises for increased strength and flexibility. Aerobic exercise: aerobic workouts aren't really necessary for weight loss; but they are important for you so you can release stress (an issue for most ectomorphs), build stamina and improve your heart health: 15-30 min. aerobic exercise 3 times a week, at a moderate to fast pace is enough. The best aerobics? Try some of the fun fat burning workouts. You should know that there is almost always some overlapping between these three body types, but no moving from one group to another. For example, if you are predominantly a mesomorph, you can trim down as much as you can, but will never become an ectomorph. Similarly, you can be an in-shape endomorph, but you still can’t pass as a mesomorph. As you can see, you don't need to take a body type test to identify your type.

ᘡ Something that I think is very important to remember... we can be self-accepting, body loving women... WITHOUT the need to put any other woman's body type down. We ALL struggle with acceptance of our bodies in their entirety... even the 'skinny' girls... EVEN the runway models. So let's help each other along the path to self-esteem, self-love, self-respect instead of being just another critic in the business of woman-shaming. We are ALL goddesses... beautiful, sexy, amazing. ᘞ
The sizes shown are UK sizes. The US equivelants are Women's Ideal: Size 0-4, Men's Ideal: 8-10, National Average: 12-14.... I think the one on the right looks too skinny. She's not fit. The girl in the middle is the best looking in my mind, but she could still use better muscle tone to look fit and "ideal."... Just my opinion.
When did it become more desirable to be a stick? -- Curves are womanly. I've drawn both very skinny girls like the first picture, and some girls like the third picture or a bit bigger. Both pretty in the face, but the curvy girl had a much more beautiful body than the first. Usually the "Men's Ideal Size" is for jerky guys anyway. Not always but most of the time. Nice guys care about more than your body size... And smart guys realize what's actually sexy (;.
a poll taken by a men's magazine. Most men chose the girl in the middle (who is a size 12) over the girl on the left who is a size 8. In second place was the girl on the right who is a size fourteen. This was not calling anyone fat, just saying that curvy girls are just as beautiful, if not more beautiful than their petite counterparts.
